Vienna 2015: Photo Post


I left my heart in Wien, the city of music. Vienna is one of those beautiful places that appear straight out of a Renaissance fairytale. At every corner, there's a stunning church with glass-stained windows and majestic domes. In every cafe, there's rich, chocolatey coffee and the streets are decked with hot dog stands and sausages that will blow your tastebuds away. Also, there is something called Mozart chocolate, or Mozartkugel, because Vienna is that into music.

I visited Austria about six years ago, but I'm thankful to have had another chance to stay in this life-changing city. This time around, we were lucky enough to attend two concerts: a performance by the Mozart Concerto and an "Ave Maria" performance by Ensemble 1756 and German soloist, Marelize Gerber. We also went to Belvedere Palace, which holds the famous Gustav Klimt collection, including "The Kiss." As of now, I'm headed off to Florence, Italy to study abroad for the fall semester. I will miss you, Wien!
